Edo State Under Siege: Absentee Governor needed at home.
The "We will partner with you" government in EDO STATE should stop chasing shadows and tackle substance. The insecurity in the state is most likely a direct consequence of the new policy thrusts of this government, but we won't ascribe blame, however, we are in awe that the " technocrat" governor did not analyse the situation to know that when you throw a large number of poorly educated, skill-less but politically exposed, used and then dumped men and women without an alternative source of income into the labour market in a recession as his party has plunged Nigeria, the result is a spike in crime.
Governor "we will partner with you", should reduce his rhetorics of partnering with all manner of visitors to government house as he is beginning to sound like a broken record. It's almost a year, and quite frankly, there is nothing to write home about! He should spend more time at home, engage the populace that are local and show more respect to Edo residents and citizens. There is a popular Nigerian saying "wetin you dey find for Sokoto dey for shokoto".
This advise has become imperative as our lives are no longer safe with the daily reports of kidnapping and armed robbery. No investor will come to Edo with the crime rate the way it is. Especially when there seem like no effort is been made in trying to tackle it. Anyway, there is no better time for the government to justify the N500m retired monthly as security votes.
Governor Obaseki should climb down from his high horse and engage the Police, DSS, NSCDC and all other security agencies to combat this menace. You may be a financial wizkid as you claim, security is definitely not up your alley. Do the needful. You cannot know it All!
